Thanks for the wonderful comment!

The plant with the pink flowers is Pentas lanceolata -
Star Flower which is in the coffee family (Rubiaceae).
It grows as a shub to 6 feet / 2 meters tall here...and
is very widely grown. It is available in many colors also.

I'm drawn to it and am going to look it up, thanks Delonix.

(P.S. any chance you can magic me there, "beam me up Scotty" ..... )

I know it is commonly sold in colder areas as
an annual. It is a super easy plant to grow...I
had one for many years.

You're beamed up...LOL!!

Is that huge tree that looks like it's coming out of the top of the gazebo a eucalyptus .... it's massive ? !!!

Louise1:

No, it's a Torrey pine which is native to the area.
If it were a Eucalytus tree it would be much, much
taller and larger.
